thats what he wants to buy, so let him but wat he wants
but i have a slight problem with your concluding sentence. yes the karma is great all mnt, u dont have to be a light guy to ski on the dumont, its not like the 1080. and i think the scratch FS is great all mountain, not just in the park. i would say that the dumont is the most park oriented ski up there.
i can see where youre coming from saying that...the reason i said what i did was because the dumont can hit the rest of the mountain quite well as compared to the scratch fs that is kind of shitty outside the park due to the chatter among other things. So yes i agree the dumont might be the better park ski but its also a good all around park and mountain ski which the scratch is not.
either karma or the scratch in the high 170s, but i can remember the lenghts they come in
